A little bit of creativity can do wonders
You’d be surprised how many times people have successfully averted disasters by using their creativity. Sometimes, in order to make things work, improvising really helps. Of course, it’s always a risk. There’s no certainity that a particular idea would work. But, at the same time, there’s no certainity that it wouldn’t work.
Great things only happen when you try. Just like how someone tried to make better use of IKEA’s famous mini-beds for kids’ toys and ended up creating awesome beds for pets. Yep, you heard that right. The $14.99 Duktig is basically a “doll bed with bedlinen set.” But, it has somehow became a very popular choice of beds for pets.
Are you wondering how is that even possible? Then take a look below and you’ll understand exactly how it’s being used for pets all around the world.
A lot of people just straight away buy this bed, maybe decorate or paint it a bit and give it to their pets. However, a lot of people are now making these beds into bunk beds for two or even three pets!
And it’s very easy too. It doesn’t require any special tools and you can do this at home with ease. All you need is a screw driver, 2 or more IKEA’s pre-assembled DUKTIG Doll Beds, about 16 wood screws and 4 mending plates.
Now, remove the board from the bottom of the beds, line up the posts and place a mending plate halfway between them screw it on the lower bunk. Then attach the mending plates to the top bunk and voila your bunk bed is ready!
These doll beds make great beds for our pets. As you can see, the cats don’t need us to put any cardboard box ON the bed for them to sit in. They love it as it is. It’s probably because it’s the perfect size, compact, soft, and also stylish. For some reason, pets also love resting their head by placing their chin on the head board. The space between the bed and the head board also lets them take stick their tails out when they’re relaxing. All in all, pets really love these beds and actually seem grateful.
Although IKEA have a separate furniture line, they probably never expected that people would be buying their toy beds for their real pets. It’s so good that it almost makes me want to try them myself. I wonder what’s so great about them that cats are finally choosing them over cardboard boxes.
